I just got a new grandbaby - one day old Alex - and this is the quilt I made for him. It is a departure from what I always thought of as 'baby' quilts: missing are the animals, embroidery, primary colors... But I think it turned out really nice and, best of all, my daughter-in-law likes it.
I used what I had from Moda's Daysail by Bonnie and Camille (see the quilt I made for the Fat Quarter Shop Blog Hop in December by clicking here). If you like Daysail as much as I do, head over to Fat Quarter Shop because they are having a sale on this line. Sweet!
Notice the skinny border I chose - the binding uses same fabric (which also happens to be the backing). I really like this border as it frames the project without my adding to the project's final size or detracting from its design. Alex's quilt was pieced and quilted with Aurifil 50 wt white. Simple straight lines were chosen for the quilting in keeping with the overall modern look.
I am heading over to California to spend some time with my son and his family. Will snuggle with Alex and his big brother, almost three-year-old Nicholas. Yes, it will be grandma's time in heaven and I can't wait.
